I have stopped by to let everyone know that I am still alive and kicking. Ha! Ha! Actually I have been down with a sciatic nerve problem since April 23rd. I couldn’t even sit at the computer at home to post to my blog. UGH! It’s been bad this time around, but with a little rest, exercise, and some good drugs I am on the road to recovery.😉
My dear friend Susie had a birthday last month and I made her this top. It is made from the pattern called Mooloolaba Shells Pattern designed by Jenny King. I loved how swingy the top is. Anyway, Susie asked if I could teach a group of her friends how to make this fun top and since I am feeling better, I decided to go ahead and schedule a class. When I brought the subject up to Catherine, owner of Creation Station in Newton she quickly pulled out her calendar and we set some dates. We have allowed for three sessions, only if needed.

There are three choices of yarn for the top:
Cotton Fair-300 yards at $5/skein=3 skeins (so sorry about the quality of the photo)
Sunseeker-250 yards at $7/skein=3-4 skeins (if you choose the Sunseeker yarn, you will need to call Catherine with your color choice before the class; as she will need to wind one of the skeins for you to begin with) I am currently making mine out of Sunseeker in turquoise and I love it.
Bamboo Pop-300 yards at $8/skein=3 skeins
Please purchase pattern before arriving for class. You can find the pattern here.
I almost forgot, please bring Hook sizes F, G, H, and I, plus scissors, yarn needle, stitch markers, and row counter (optional).
Hurry, call Catherine and sign up for this cute, fun, and easy swingy top class.🙂
